Today I decree that painting season is officially open! First day of spring was this week. And, hey, it's the first Saturday all year that it's above freezing (a balmy 43*) and not snowing. So I packed my crew into the car and headed off to Home Depot for supplies.
But, once we got started, it was impossible to stop -- and we went around the corner and across to the basement stairs. I kept thinking, the more we do ourselves, the less the professional painters (who we'll need to paint up into the two-story-tall areas in the family room and foyer -- I don't own scaffolding) will have to charge us.
Painting the foyer white is Step 1 in my framing/molding project. I taped to the top of the current framing schematics and laid down the base coat of glorious white. (And got rid of that awful blue-green sample I didn't like one bit.)
... And, while I had the white paint out, I said "why not paint the arch and wall that lead to the back hallway..."
